wrapped in fleeces
cinnamon greeting on coated tongue
footwear, elegant and dangerous to the spine
slick bags, i think, containing small knives
(the better to eat you with, my dear)
or razors and mace
they cluster in groups of six
one looking over the other's shoulder
at the dank man slumped on the curb
bobbing his head over an empty wax-coated cup
four layers of sweatshirts
and a black plastic bag
her eyes narrow and dart
and i hear nails tick tick on snaps
hands twisting into satchels
pushing aside lip gloss, extra nylons, condoms
grasping the slim flakes of steel
they wet their lips
